Case studyCheck airports energetically and optimize them individually


Airports are logistical transhipment points, transfer rooms, gateways to places of longing. As growing real estate, however, there are also infrastructure challenges lurking here that require clever energy strategies.

In our case, there were several tasks to be mastered:

The airport expanded by leasing more space to outside companies.

Originally not designed in this way, we solved the heating and electricity bills for tenants and tenants. In a mix of our calculation tools and monitoring units, we were able to establish a transparent contract and billing structure. As a starting point, we took the allocation key and created meaningful units based on reference data

The airport expanded by building additional real estate and leasing space.

A hotel was built on the site, which was to be connected to a power station 500 m away. There were no cost calculations and therefore no strategies for billing.

We start with a measurement on the supply line and calculated a 20% loss for the reference period. We analyzed the efficiency and compared prices in the competitive environment. Our recommendation for risk and risk as well as a margin to be achieved formed the basis for the airport's settlement contracts with the hotel.

Like every airport, the airport needed highly secure networks.

We can deal with high-security networks and prevent accidents and build up our energy supply with emergency power systems. We built secondary networks on the 2nd and 3rd levels, using emergency power generators and energy storage devices (" UPSs ").


Airports are subject to special security requirements, e.g. we have to and can offer highly secure networks. There are also challenges with energy concepts regarding the letting of large, open spaces to several different tenants.
